I was particularly struck by the following paragraph (my emphasis):
In the absence of leadership from the European Union, the United Nations and the Arab League, it is incumbent on the United States to seize this historic opportunity, to demonstrate that we've learned the lessons of Rwanda -- and act to save lives in Darfur now.
Just about everyone is realizing that the UN is not a viable entity to deal with situations that require clear, decisive action. Or action of any kind, really.
Here we have a call from a human rights organization for unilateral US action. Is that the best way? If not, what are some viable alternatives that would make a difference?
